Hello and welcome to yet another blog post from Team Neutrinos.
Today we will touch upon some of the most common low-code myths which remain unaddressed, especially in enterprise circles.
Low-Code Platforms are gaining tremendous momentum within enterprises that took an early plunge into this new category of application development platforms. Though there are several research reports and constant coverage from analysts and influencers, this has not helped to influence some of the common beliefs within business and developer communities.
Let us jump right in, shall we?
Old Wine in a New Bottle
Low-Code Platforms have their roots in traditional RAD Platforms as well as BPM Platforms. Though low-code platforms carry some of the legacies from those products, most of the capabilities were unheard of before. Be it citizen development, IoT/ AI/ ML, or even rapid prototyping and deployment.
Low-Code platforms have taken the enterprise app development game to a new level. Due to the available modern technology at our disposal, it is possible to develop the most complex software applications with minimal coding and unprecedented speed of delivery.
Rounding it up, Low-Code Platforms are not a small upgrade to BPM or traditional RAD Platforms. It’s a new product category that will shape the future of enterprise app development.
Can’t do Mobile with Low-Code
Another common belief is that; low-code platforms can only enable web applications, and for mobile apps, you need a different platform, popularly known as the Mobile Application Development Platform (MADP). Though MADP is designed specifically for developing mobile apps, low-code platforms are not far behind.
The ideology for modern low-code platforms is to code once and deploy anywhere. The experience for the user should be seamless regardless of the platform or device used by the app.
This scenario is a big deal for enterprises, as they do not need to maintain different codebase, resources, infrastructure, etc. They can use one platform to develop their apps and deploy them everywhere for their customers to access.
Low-Code = Small Apps
This one is a piece of baggage from early iterations of low-code platforms. When low-code app development started getting visibility in enterprises, it was commonly used to experiment with small apps with minimal complexity.
Today’s low-code platforms are built to scale. At Neutrinos, we have used our advanced low-code platform to develop some of the most complex apps for enterprises in diverse industry domains. Whether it to create a sensor-based IoT billboard app or build a claims chatbot for a large insurer, enterprises are utilizing low-code capabilities across the globe.
Low-Code is for Citizen Developers Only
Citizen Development as a concept became popular after low-code platforms made inroads into enterprises.
One of the key benefits of low-code platforms is that it allows non-developers to build business applications with minimum tech knowledge. Though it is a great capability, it does not stop there.
The primary purpose of low-code platforms is to equip professional developers to reduce coding time and create apps faster. That’s why the term ‘low code is commonly used by professional developers, while the term ‘no code is used by business people.
Wrapping it up
Low-Code Platforms are a mainstream product category. Enterprises are parking special budgets to implement, adopt, and maximize the use of low-code platforms. It is time we let go of popular beliefs and experience low-code platforms in real-time.
